The only negative thing I can say is that the beds were way too soft for me. I have a bad back and need a firmer bed, so I didn't sleep too well. Other than that the room was beautiful and very comfortable.

The hotel is clean and tidy. It is a bit in the middle of nowhere if you have not got a hire car. There are outlet shops and a cafe nearby. A food court is due to open Summer 2019. It didn't look like being finished any time soon in August 2019! There is a small supermarket on the complex. It is a bit expensive, but so is Wal-Mart (which is just… Read more
The hotel is clean and tidy. It is a bit in the middle of nowhere if you have not got a hire car. There are outlet shops and a cafe nearby. A food court is due to open Summer 2019. It didn't look like being finished any time soon in August 2019! There is a small supermarket on the complex. It is a bit expensive, but so is Wal-Mart (which is just down the road) for some food items. We didn't use the Irish bar - walked in one evening, but no one wanted to serve us, so we left. A takeway coffee is $1 cheaper in the supermarket than the pool bar. The pool is great, and the bar not too overpriced. The pirate ship is just a water slide. There is a much smaller quieter pool accross the road near the shop. There is also a spa on site. As part of our package we got 2 free treatments. They were lovely, but you still need $7.80 for a tip each treatment. Worst part of the stay was the 'regular' shuttle buses. This was one reason for booking the hotel. There are 3 buses run to Disney, 8.40am, 10am & 12.15pm. There are 3 returns 6pm, 7.45pm & 10.30pm. Buses to Universal were 10.20am and 12.30pm, with returns at 6.15pm and 9.45pm. It would have been nice to be able to return at lunchtime from the parks, and have a bus in the evening to go and see the fireworks/shows. You have to prebook the shuttle the day before and most days universal was fully booked by 7am. Last return coach was a nightmare. At Disney there was always too many people for the coach and it was a free-for-all to get on. The coach company only sent an extra coach once they arrived and saw how many guests were waiting, meaning another 20-30 minute wait! We had priority board voucher for the shuttle bus, but this was a joke. It was never asked for! The coaches were like prison buses. We ended up using Uber to get around. It is a 20-30 minute drive to the parks The hotel did provide all towels, face cloths, hand, bath and pool. They also provided sisp, body wash, shampoo and conditioner. BRI g your own tea and coffee. The hotel provided 1 filer coffee pack on arrival, but you could not buy extras anywhere, you had to buy bulk filters and ground coffee. There are hair dryers in the batbrooms, they aren't great, but worked. We had a 'firework view' we could just about see Epcot and Hollywood Studios in the horizon! We were locked out on checkout day at 11.30am, with no warning, despite booking late checkout until 3pm. Apparently we needed to tell reception to not deactivate the room cards! Read less

Me, My Husband, My parents and 2 adult children stayed in a 3 bed 2 bath apartment. Although the pictures on the website make it look great it's actually quite tired and the bathrooms definitely need resealing and the showerheads and taps need a good clean. It was fine for what we needed and had enough space but a 3 seater sofa and two uncomfortable wooden chairs was not enough for 6 adults to relax in. Two rings of the cooker also did not work. As others have said the entry system is awful and one of the lifts broke down in building 3 broke down with people in it whilst we were there! The pool area is good but some of the beds need replacing. The staff were all very courteous though. It is ideally located for all Disney Parks and Disney Springs which are all about 15 minutes drive away. There is a very local Walmart and Publix and lots of good restaurants within 10 minutes drive. Probably wouldn't stay there again due to the room. Read less

The pictures will fool you except the pool and landscape that all looks the same. My family and I stayed in room 2309 a 3 bedroom. The room was not vacuumed or swept, the showers had mildew and mold so we went and bought products to clean. The blinds and ceiling fans were all full of dust build up.

The room was not vacuumed or swept, the showers had mildew and mold so we went and bought products to clean. The blinds and ceiling fans were all full of dust build up. The king beds did not have the right size fitted sheets while sleeping we had to get up and pull the sheet to try and make it stretch to fit. Read less
